SD4761NE SUN STREET
1685-1/7/301 (West side)
Terrace of 6 houses, one now a shop. Late C18, altered mid C19
and C20. Sandstone ashlar in narrow courses, and slate roof.
Designed as 3 pairs each having linked doorways in the centre,
rear extensions at the side of each house and gable chimney
stacks, except No.10, which is of deeper plan and with
staircase in rear extension to right.
3 storeys above cellars and one bay per house. The doorways
have plain surrounds and 6-panel doors, but the windows have
plain reveals. The windows of No.10 have been altered on the
first floor, by the insertion of a pair of glazing bar sash
windows, and on the ground floor by the creation of a wide
opening with chamfered reveals filled by a shop front with
canted sides and a full-width timber fascia with segmental
pediment in the centre. Nos 18 & 20, at the left, have late
C20 bow windows on the ground floor, the right-hand one under
a concrete lintel, and steel balconies on the first floor;
their first- and second-floor windows are glazing bar sashes.
No.16 has a glazing bar sash on the first floor. No.14 has
similar windows on the ground and first floors. The remaining
windows are either 4-pane sashes or C20 casements. Rear
elevation with full-height stair windows to centre of each
pair (except No.10).
HISTORY: probably built just after the creation of Sun Street,
which was laid out in 1791 on the garden of the Sun Inn,
Church Street (qv).
